These crazy cute puppies are Shiba Inus, an ancient Japanese hunting breed. They are the first litter for a Shiba Inu named Kika, and they will turn just 6 weeks old tomorrow, on November 18th, 2008 and yes, all of the pups are spoken for and not for sale. Each puppy sports a different colored collar and there are (perfectly, adorably) 3 girls and 3 boys. I mean, come on! They are on a live, 24-hour a day, 7 day a week live stream via the immensely popular live stream site UstreamTV which was initially popularized by US soldiers in the Iraq war as way to talk with their loved ones live.
The site features live sound as well, so if you are at all like me and leave a small window up at all times, be prepared to hear shrieks, yelps, cries, howls (yes!) and even the voices of the pups’ anonymous owners as they all go about their day. Their sudden freakouts have scared the heck out of me a few times, and I won’t lie. Sometimes they sound like rabid monkeys. But I can’t stay mad at them, daaawwwwwwwww. You can also catch their momma in the pen to let them nurse a few times a day, and often they are wrasslin’ with each other and their myriad of toys. But I tell ya, those little fatties are lazy! They sleep so much and play so hard. Love those lil fuzzies.
Check it out, they won’t be puppies for long.
